How to Measure Your Foot

  • Place your feet flat on a piece of paper and mark your longest toe and the back of your foot. It's best to do this standing and wearing socks
  • Measure the length (cm) straight from your longest toe to the back of your foot using a ruler or measuring tape.
  • Use the chart to find your size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! Just wore these for the first time yesterday and did a lot of walking. They were very comfortable. Love the quarry color. Ordered 1/2 size up, which I usually do for boots. Great fit with warm socks. Great that they are waterproof

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cutest Boots Ever (with Weird Fit) First, I absolutely adore these boots. They're so cute, super practical, and work with so many outfits. I've barely taken them off since I got them a few weeks ago. That being said, the seam between the toe cap area and the boot's body is tighter than the rest of the boot and digs into the top of my foot. I was hoping they'd stretch with use, but after a few weeks of almost non-stop wear the issue is just as bad as ever. I've never had this issue with shoes before, so I don't think I have a particularly "thick" foot, but who knows.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boot for any outfit I love this boot, I have the Joan of Arctic boot in a 9.5 and so I was not sure how this boot would fit without the wedge. Luckily I bought a 9.5 and it fit PERFECT. The top of the boot is a little snug on the top of my foot right out of the box but after a week of wearing them the leather adjusted to my feet. I have worn them everyday since I bought them, I can dress them up or down and they look good with everything!! They are very comfy and I can wear them for a full day and not get sore feet. I get so many compliments on them and everyone says they have to have them! I definitely suggest buying them, worth the price!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the same size Based on the reviews, I bought my normal 8.5. Unfortunately, the shoes do not fit the same. The left shoe feels true to size, while the right shoe fits like a 9. I wore them out twice, with socks of different thickness, to see how they felt. My right foot feels like it's swimming in the boot even with a thick sock. It's driving me nuts to have one shoe fit so much bigger than the other. I've never had this issue with any other pair of shoes. It's a bummer because Sorel is now sold out of my size and color if I was to try and make an exhange. They're so cute and comfortable, aside from the weird fit issue.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Major/Black not as pictured I ordered these boots in the major/black color. In the picture it looks like a camel color but in reality they are more of a greenish gray color. I wanted the camel color. Looking at past reviews it appears this is an issue others have had as well. It looks like the camel color is actually Sorel's Elk color, not major/black. Sorel needs to fix their picture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable from the first wear Wore these to work and was expecting to be in a little discomfort, as most leather boots I've worn need a bit of a breaking-in period. These fit a little snuggly but not tight (fit well with thin socks, probably not so well if worn with thick winter socks) but they were so comfortable! And I did a fair amount of walking throughout the day (a couple of miles worth). And of course, they are super great quality and look great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from May Not Take Them Off I was so excited to finally purchase these shoes. They are so comfy and mold to your foot within a day. Not much break in necessary and they will be perfect for the wet, soggy winter here in Michigan. I will definitely be purchasing more Sorel shoes in the near future!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite I've wanted a pair of Sorel boots for the fall/winter in NJ, it gets wet! So the fact that these are waterproof is amazing. I'm a hairstylist so I'm on my feet all day (on concrete floors) and these are so comfortable + awesome support! I usually wear a 10 and sized up to a 10.5 so I could wear thick socks with them... they're perfect. I cant wait to add more to my collection. ♡♡

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I ordered 3 different boots - ehhh I ordered what I thought was the camel colored boot (Major/Black); but it arrived like greenish / brown color. I spoke with Sorel and they admitted it wasn't the color pictured. They said they would send me a free return label. (They also were a little tight for a 7.5 - my normal size) So next time I ordered the "camel" again, thinking it was a defect in the first order, and the black (both in a size 8). Apparently, the pictured tan / camel does not exist in real life. These next boots were exactly the same. And the size 8 feels loose in the heel. I wanted to love them, and for $150, I should. All 3 pairs have been returned.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not how it looks in pictures These shoes were not what I had expected. They're too bulky and fit one size bigger than my usual 8.5 Also the shoes I ordered were a different color. I was shipped the wrong one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp looking boot Very happy with quality of material and construction, and shoe size was true to fit which is important has I am a hard to fit size12. Color discription was spot on this is a beautiful boot very comfortable...Sorel please keep making these great boots in size 12 cute footwear hard to find in this size. I highly recommend this boot worth the money they look like they will hold up well. I will be ordering more. Flattering, they look more like a size 10 on my foot. Loving your boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect boots Based on reviews I purchased 1/2sz up, I have a high bridge which makes finding a comfortable boot difficult. Initially they felt tight, I put on a thick pair of socks and wore them around the house for awhile, that did the trick. These are an excellent pair of boots. I throughly tested them taking them camping for 4days the following weekend as my only pair of shoes. I also wore them on a 3mile hike on rough terrain during the trip. Not one time did they hurt my feet. These are a pair of boots that will last. They can be worn dressed up or down and I highly recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, classic, cool Shockingly comfortable! The style is modern yet classic and will be “in” for years to come. Quality and fit are great. No break in time needed; ready to walk a mile right out of the box! Love!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boot This is my first Sorel purchase and I'm super excited to break these in. I've never been so glad for a rainy forecast! I purchased a size 11 boot for an upcoming trip to NYC. I used to live there and know how much walking is involved, but I didn't want an ugly "walking shoe" style shoe--I needed to be stylish with my NYC crew. I have only had these for a day so will update if something changes after a weekend full of wear, but so far they're super comfy right out of the box! As a woman with a big foot, I've also been continually disappointed with shoes that look cute in small sizes and ridiculous in my size 11. These look fabulous in an 11, like normal shoes instead of clodhoppers. As a mom on the go, the slip-on style is fabulous and just what I needed. I have a regular foot width and high-ish arches, and these fit well--not too narrow or too wide. They're also true to my regular size shoe. I tried them on with thick/ankle athletic socks and that wasn't great; I definitely need to wear them with thin wool socks or dress socks that come above ankle length.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable! A friend at work was wearing heels all day. I asked how she could do that and she said they were Sorel boots so they felt great. I’m a teacher so I’m on my feet all day so I thought I’d try these booties first. I can’t believe how comfortable they are all day. I’m looking forward to my next pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable! I normally wear a 9 but chose to order a 9.5 because it was a boot style and I might wear heavier socks. They fit perfectly and they are very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfortable and stylish This was my first ankle style boot I’ve worn and I couldn’t be happier. The fit is perfect/true to size, super comfortable, and the boot is well made. I chose the quarry color and have gotten many compliments already, and they go with many different outfits. I highly recommend these boots!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Putting on the miles I love my new black Emelie Chelsea boots so much I have worn them every day since they arrived in the mail. I work in a business casual environment and wanted something I could wear at work, to walk my dogs in the Midwest fall and winter months without slipping or getting my socks wet, and something for nights out with friends— these boots do it all! They are so comfortable I was even able to find comfort after a minor foot surgery. I have gotten so many compliments which is just another added bonus! :)I will gladly be purchasing another pair! Just have to figure out what color....

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Darker than expected The boots are very nice but the color is way darker than I expected. I was disappointed because I have many boots the exact same color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So cute - hard to believe they are rainboots! Love the slip on rainboot style with super cute look. I wear these every day. Very comfortable! Size chart is a little misleading; I had to exchange for 1/2 size down from what was recommended (which ended up being my normal size).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Daily Staple I wear a 7.5 to 8 and I bought the , so I had a bit more room. I wear a light to medium weight sock and they are very comfortable and no "break-in" time. The 7.5 would of fit fine, but I wanted the option for a little bit heavier sock.The cattail color is a nice deep brown that goes well with everything. The ankle area is loose and does not dig in when walking a lot, which is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect casual bootie These are great boots. Living in a city it’s always so hard to find a stylish and comfortable bootie that can also be worn in the rain. You never know when a storm will pop up or they will be cleaning or they may be cleaning the streets. No worrying about your boots staining from water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish staple These are my new favorite boots. I can wear them with anything- dressed up a bit with a skirt, or with jeans. They are amzingly versitle. I wear them through the wet lawn to hang laundry, straight onto my bike to commute to work, then all day, and out for dinner in the evening! I stay comfortable and dry (not sweaty, like some waterproof shoes!) and still feel stylish! All my friends are asking where I got these. I love the stetch enrty, and the real leather upper molded well to my foot after a few days wear. At first they might feel snug, but hold in there for a few full day’s wear, they stretched in just the right places to fit my wide/high arch/high volume foot. True to size in the end! Stick to your true size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boot! Super comfy and with the durability you’d expect from Sorel. I’ve worn these every day since they arrived 2 weeks ago, with jeans and skirts. They slip on fast as I dash out the door, but don’t slip as I run through my day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these boots These boots are my favorite from Sorel so far. I've worn them though all the seasons rain, ice, snow and they have held up well. These are quality, durable, boots with enough style to still dress up a bit with. These fit true to size and might be too narrow for people with wide feet. I love them so much I had to get them in another color. These are my go to shoes for 3/4 of the year here in the pacific northwest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Emelie Chelsea Boot Review These are my 5th pair of Sorels so I'm a big fan of the brand - stylish and practical at the same time. I've worn these boots twice and love how comfortable they are - very cozy to walk around in on a chilly autumn day. I would highly recommend these boots!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I usually buy boots with a pointed toe but these won me over. Incredibly comfortable, waterproof, look great with skinny jeans, can be dressed up or down, and do not scratch easily. This is a boot that gets better with time. I almost always wear size 9 but 8.5 fit me best. Love, love, love this boot !!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Instant love Read a few reviews and sized up half a size and these couldn’t have fit any better! Wore them instantly for hours and never had to break them in to prevent hot spots or blisters. These are so versatile from adventure to work wear, very highly recommended!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tight instep Ordered this boot as I love the taller model from last year. I love the style but it is slightly tight in the instep along the seam. Color is great and note I have found almost all women’s sorel boots run a 1/2 size small

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I was looking for a comfortable short bootie I could wear all day at work on the concrete floor that was also slip resistant— and these are perfect! Very true to size, super comfortable and I love how my feet don’t get too hot in them. I would buy every color, cause they look so cute on too!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Came Damaged I am keeping these, but probably should exchange. They came with many scuff marks, one deep scratch and one major discoloration spot an inch long. But they're comfortable, easy to put on and take off.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Size up &... Love these boots! However I ended up returning the major/black (not what's pictured. Major Black was an ok grey-green..I have boots that color. What's pictured is elk/Cordovan (lighter tan) I own 3 pair of Sorel's, &they always fit perfectly straight outta the box. These didn't. Narrow toe box, huge around the ankle. I ordered the elk Cordova from another site.( got exact same size/ half size up) they were less money, &the color I really wanted...&THEY FIT PERFECTLY right out of the box! The fit is fantastic, they are beyond comfortable, &they really do go with any style!! Probs gonna get black as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love 'em Another Sorel Love story. From the moment I put these boots on they were comfortable. I wore them apple picking and then all day at work and I was comfortable (and dry during outdoor wet recess\apple fields). I sat criss-cross on a rock and they didn't scuff. I bought them in black and will probably buy a pair in brown eventually!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent booties I bought these in Cattail brown in my true size of 8.5 and broke them in a couple of weeks ago. They're my first non-lace-up Sorels, and they fit a little narrow, but my feet are wide at the ball of the foot. They are comfortable, cute and sturdy, and I've received many compliments already.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect shoe To say I love and swear by sorel boots is an understatement! These are fantastic! The major/black colour is more olive green in person as it appears tan in the photos! But that’s not a bad thing at all! The insole feels like walking on marshmallow clouds! I can walk in these for hours without fear of my feet getting tired or covered in blisters. Their a wee bit baggy around the ankle but that might just be my freakishly honey feet. Definitely recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from L.O.V.E. I agree, go up 1/2 size. These booties definitely fit snugger than the Slim Boots and Joan of Arctic. However, they are amazing. Sorel never lets me down. I purchased the CATTAIL and the leather is as smooth as butter. Can’t wait til Fall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Shoe!! Love everything about this boot!! The construction, the fit, and most of all the comfort make it the perfect shoe. I normally wear a 10, but needed a 10.5 in this shoe. It was somewhat difficult to find, as this size sells quickly. I bought it immediately when it became available. I would love to have one in dark tan, maybe even navy. This will be my go-to shoe from now on!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic leather boot that does it all! These are a must have in my closet. I can wear them to meetings, out on the town, and they are so comfortable you can be running around in them all day long! I went with black to match the darker palettes of my wordrobe. I highly recommend these so all my friends.
